Evolution can be a wondrous thing in the life of any human being. But its process can be grueling, troubling, painful, and beautiful all at once. Have you ever felt yourself transforming within? Have you ever looked at the world and it looked different? Like you were looking at it with new eyes? It’s a contrasting thought and discovery when you are yearning for the newness that evolution and elevation brings but still holding on to those things that you find comfortable and safe. I am so very passionate about working with women in transition in their lives, whether that be divorce, new marriage, blending families, new career, or new mindset shift from one way of being to a greater way of being. One reason is because that space, that sacred territory that can make all the difference between greatness and mediocrity is so beautifully elegant in its own right. It’s where we are most powerful, where we have the most control, and where we make the most impact. There are few things in this life that we can actually be sure of. Evolution is one of them. We WILL evolve when life decides to shift us into our calling. The only question is whether we will answer the call to elevate or if we will be stubborn and try to hold on for dear life to that which has sustained us for a specific purpose, for a specific season.
One of the unconscious questions that come up for women in transition is, “Who am I without this struggle? Without this _______? (Insert whatever thing, traumatic history or damaging mindset that has sustained you in life thus far). This is the question of our lives, isn’t it? Who am I? Once we get to a place where we think we know who we are and what we are supposed to be, there goes life, disrupting us again, trying to force us to shift. But you know what the funny thing is? We spend so much time asking and dreaming and praying, that we often forget to prepare ourselves for the very things that we are praying and dreaming for. We pray for increase and elevation, but resist when opportunities present themselves to allow us to increase and elevate. Why do you think that is? And what are you willing to do about it?
